Small Batch Buttermilk Biscuits

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp butter cold
  • ½ cup cold buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp butter melted

Instructions

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Grate butter and add to flour mixture. Using your (clean) hands (or a pastry blender), mix the butter into the flour mixture until butter resembles small peas. Mix in the buttermilk until a shaggy dough just comes together.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F and lightly grease a baking sheet or cast iron skillet.
  • Turn mixture out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a 1-inch thick square. Cut dough in half and stack one half on top of the other. Pat into a square. Repeat this process one more time. Cut dough into four square biscuits and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until tops are lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter. Let cool slightly before serving.
